GIY (Grow it Yourself) have teamed up with Cully & Sully, one of Ireland’s biggest food business success stories to create the Give Peas a Chance campaign to foster a spirit of food entrepreneurship in Irish secondary schools.
We want students to replicate the Cully & Sully success story by using their class grown peas or pea shoots to create a soup recipe, name it, and pitch it to us as a food business of the future.

To Enter:

Register for your free growing kits below. We will send you out a free growing kit on Monday the 24th April with everything you need including, seeds, pots, soil and plenty of growing tips from GIY. 

The Competition:

To win the grand prize your teams need to:
  • Show us their progress.
  • Complete 4 weekly challenges.
  • Pitch us their #ReciPEAForSuccess.
 The growing season will run from 24th April to May 19th 2017.

The Prizes:

The winning recipe will appear on the menu in the GROW HQ Café in Waterford City and on Cully & Sully’s website. There are also prizes to the value of €5,000 for you, for your school and your students. 
  • A vegetable garden worth €3,000 for your school.
  • An overnight break away to Ballymaloe House for the winning teacher.
